While hosting the Game Developer’s Choice Awards tonight Tim Schafer, Double Fine’s fearless leader, debuted the first trailer for the studio’s third downloadable title known simply as Trenched. From what’s been gathered by watching the trailer, it looks to be a mech combat game in the vein of Chromehounds where a human faction called the Mobile Trench Brigade defends itself from the Monovision, mutated television monstrosities. There looks to be an ample amount of customization for the mechs, but not much else is known at the moment.
Sadly we do not have a copy of the trailer yet, but when it becomes available it will be inserted here in this post. Until then, head to the Trenched website where you can watch it on infinite loop. If you’re curious as to what the game looks like, check out the gallery below.
Where there’s Treasure, gunfire is never far off, Or in this case: missile fire. Watch as thousands of rockets are launched in this trailer for a madman’s bullet hell dream known as Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury. It looks as if this mind blowing shooter will launch sometime in the spring. Until then watch the trailer below, scope out the new screens, and consider picking up a copy of Bangai-O Spirits on DS.
New details have emerged today from 5th Cell regarding their upcoming XBLA shooter Hybrid along with a time frame of it’s official reveal.
Hybrid will be set in a world devastated by an extinction level asteroid that takes out a large number of Earth’s population. To make matters worse, an organism hidden in the planet destroyer infects half of the survivors and genetically alters them, bringing about a new race known as the Variant. Those who were immune to the infection, the Paladin, are pitted against the Variant in a post-apocalyptic world war.
Comic Jumper was developed by Twisted Pixel and published by Microsoft Game Studios for XBLA on October 6th, 2010. Retails for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). The publisher provided a copy of the game for reviewing purposes.
Captain Smiley and his sidekick Star aren’t the greatest heroes ever created, and they damn well know it. After having their ongoing comic series canceled, the duo become guest stars for hire in other comics in order to make enough money and gain enough popularity to reclaim the spotlight that was lost to them. Comic Jumper has a lot to live up to with Twisted Pixels past two games being rather successful. They deliver an adventure that is a comedic and aesthetic hit, but has fundamental issues with pacing and level design, ultimately falling short of greatness.
Bringing their own brand of justice to each crossover, Smiley and Star will earn money by means of fan-set challenges and “righting” wrongs. Twisted Pixel themselves also play a large role in the game, even outside of creating the adventure. By destroying the fourth wall the development house provides the funding and technology to make comic jumping possible. In each new world Captain Smiley is confronted by a quirky rogue’s gallery consisting of a Duke Nukem stand-in, a feminist bondage-loving villainess, and a maniacal mini golfer. With the money earned, upgrades can be purchased at the home base to increase slide time, health, and damage.
